Player Notes
Brandon McCarthy (elbow) threw a 50-60 pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

Advice: He was able to throw his full arsenal of pitches. Manager Dave Roberts noticed significant improvement from his previous bullpen session. "Brandon was good today," he said. "I saw him on Tuesday, and he was OK, but today the ball was coming out better for me." McCarthy has been focusing on building up his arm strength and repeating his mechanics. If McCarthy can avoid setbacks, he should return to the Dodgers' rotation before the All-Star break.

Brandon McCarthy (elbow) threw a bullpen session Tuesday in front of Dodgers officials.

Advice: He should be getting close to facing live hitters. McCarthy underwent Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last April and probably won't become an option for the Dodgers' rotation until late June or early July.
